Monique Jones Ravens 21, Dolphins 18 The Dolphins may need a little more time to adjust after a short week following a bad loss to the Saints on Monday night. The Ravens squeeze out a win on the road. Mike Preston Ravens 21, Dolphins 17 Ravens got their feelings hurt when they got pushed around by the Bills last week. They rebound this week and QB Joe Flacco has a big game after throwing five interceptions last Sunday. Peter Schmuck Ravens 30, Dolphins 23 The Ravens will work the kinks out of their vapor-locked running game and feature a balanced attack that wears down the Dolphins defense.

RAVENS PASSING GAME: Quarterback Joe Flacco, who threw a career-high five interceptions against the Buffalo Bills, has traditionally responded to poor performances. He's thrown two interceptions or more in 14 regular-season games. The following week after those contests, he's thrown 18 touchdown passes and four interceptions. His supporting cast remains in flux as four of his top five receivers weren't full participants in practice this week. Flacco hasn't directed a first-quarter scoring drive since Week 1. vs.  DOLPHINS PASSING GAME: Second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill can hurt teams with his arm and legs.

A roundup of NFL experts' picks for Sunday's game between the Ravens and Miami Dolphins. * ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio and Michael David Smith both think the Ravens to lose, but they differ on the final score . MDS's take: Perhaps it's premature, four weeks into the season, to say this about the defending Super Bowl champion. But I just don't think the Ravens are a very good team. The Dolphins' defense had plenty of flaws on display in Monday night's loss to the Saints, but the Ravens' suspect offensive line is going to make it easy for the Dolphins to get to Joe Flacco.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I hope to enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Kevin Nogle, who blogs about the Dolphins for The Phinsider . MV: The Dolphins raised some eyebrows with their offseason spending spree, which including signing former Ravens inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. How have those free-agent acquisitions paid off so far?

So much has changed for Dannell Ellerbe since the Super Bowl . He is in a new city wearing a different uniform for another AFC contender. He is now the leader that young players look to in key moments, instead of it being the other way around. And yes, his wallet is heavier nowadays. But every time a replay of the Super Bowl pops up, he can't help but flash back to his final run with the Ravens and feel like it all happened just yesterday. "That's something that drives me today, to get back to that position and get back to the Super Bowl and win again," said Ellerbe, now the Miami Dolphins starting middle linebacker.

Each week, Baltimore Sun reporters Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel look back at the Ravens' previous game and that of their next opponent. Saints 38, Dolphins 17 Strategy: The Dolphins, in their variation of the West Coast offense, rely on short drops and quick passes to get the ball to their receivers in the passing game. They used a lot of three-wide-receiver sets with mobile second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill in the shotgun or pistol formation against the Saints on Monday night, especially as they tried to play catch-up after halftime.

Dolphins 23, Browns 10 Strategy: With a new head coach in Rob Chudzinski and new coordinators in Norv Turner and Ray Horton, the Browns will look a little different than they did a year ago. Offensively, the Browns used a variety of formations and their most common groupings were three-receiver sets and sets with two wide receivers and two tight ends. They passed often, throwing 53 times on 66 plays, in part because their running game was ineffective. Defensively, the Browns run a base 3-4. Horton likes to blitz, though, and sent five or more pass rushes on about half the plays.

Scientists believe a virus similar to measles in humans is responsible for an accelerating die-off in bottlenose dolphins along the Mid-Atlantic coast. Since July 1, 333 dead dolphins have washed ashore from North Carolina to New York, 10 times normal levels. In Maryland, 18 have been found dead since July 1, with most of those in the past few weeks. The virus could remain a threat to the dolphin population through next spring, the scientists said. The most promising theory is that the dolphin population gradually lost resistance to the disease, known as morbillivirus, since it caused a similar epidemic in the late 1980s.

Seven bottlenose dolphins have washed up dead on Maryland shores in recent weeks, part of a larger mystery along the Mid-Atlantic coast, where alarmed scientists are working to find the cause of more than 120 dolphin deaths since June. The seven dolphin carcasses were found in the Chesapeake Bay and on beaches on Maryland's Atlantic coast during July. In a typical July, marine biologists might respond to a single report of a dead dolphin, said Dr. Cindy Driscoll, veterinarian and fish and wildlife health program director for the state Department of Natural Resources.

Dolphin sightings off Maryland's Atlantic beaches have rebounded after a dismal tally last summer. Volunteers and staff of the National Aquarium spotted 113 of the marine mammals during their annual count Friday, up from just 31 seen this time last year.  They tallied sightings for three hours at four spots along the coast - at Assateague State Park's day use area and in Ocean City at 40th, 81st and 130th streets. Annual counts like Ocean City's provide marine mammal experts with snapshots of dolphin populations, as well as indications of reproduction rates and food abundance.  Aquarium staff attributed last year's lower than average count to factors such as the weather, bigger swells and food availability.
